Nicki Minaj’s wigs in 2011: a retrospective
Oh, Nicki, Nicki, Nicki. Nobody wears a wig the way Minaj does, thanks to her stylist Terrence Davidson who creates her chefs-d’oeuvre by hand. The singer surprised us many times this year with bursting colorful looks that would make your grandma blush. Here’s what 2011 looked like, from a Barbie's perspective.
Nicki started 2011 on a high note, with this amazing editorial shoot for V magazine, pairing a green Versace dress with tribal face paint. “I would crumple up and die if I had to wake up and be the same person every day. I don’t silence those voices anymore. I just let them speak,” Minaj says. #Word
